Straight Talk is getting into the mobile broadband business with a 3G-only hotspot that runs on the Verizon network. The hotspot is the UniMax U240C. It's priced at $79.88 and supports up to five connected devices.
The Straight Talk hotspot is currently only available from Walmart but is listed on Straight Talk's Devices Page where there's a link to the user guide (download PDF), (view online). I imagine StraightTalk will eventually ofter the hotspot on their own site.
To go with the new hotspot, there are five plans
- $15 for 1 GB good for 30 days
- $25 - 2 GB - 30 days
- $40 - 4 GB - 60 days
- $50 - 5 GB - 60 days
- $75 - 7GB - 60 days
